Melbourne Road is wonderfully located approximately 0.5 miles East of Blackhorse Road station (the station offers Victoria Line and Over Ground Services towards Gospel Oak and Barking). Melbourne Road forms a tangle of turnings that mainly comprise neat rows of Victorian era Properties. The area is popular with both young families and those that are looking to take their first step on to the busy East London property ladder.
The house is within close proximity to a number of GOOD and OUTSTANDING schools, with Hillyfield Primary Academy being the closest at approximately 0.2 miles away.
If you lived here:
You could take a walk to Walthamstow's famous Lloyd Park where inside the park you'll find the award winning William Morris Gallery - William Morris is arguably one of Walthamstow’s most famous residents and he was in fact born and grew up in Walthamstow having lived in Water House as his childhood home. This is now the wonderful William Morris gallery and the grounds now form the wide open expanse that is Lloyd Park.
The park is ideal for tranquil walks or feed the ducks that reside on its lakes (as long as its not bread). Or attend one of the many free events that take place in the park throughout the year.
Or Take a stroll in the other direction to Blackhorse Road and Blackhorse ‘Village’ are nearby giving great access to Blackhorse Road station. The name is actually a mispronunciation of Black House, a grand old house that once stood near St James Street. Blackhorse Road runs through the heart land of the old Warner estate. Stoneydown Park is not only a great park with a kids playground, it is also home to a music festival. Every summer the Stoneydown Park festival fills the air with good music from local musicians, and fills our bellies with great food and nice cold beer. Its completely free Quiet streets, good transport links and free music, what more could you want.
Finally not forgetting the picturesque Walthamstow Marshes, wetlands and Canals that are located within easy cycling distance - perfect for long weekend walks with the kids / dog.
